This blog documents the art practice of Melissa Cameron. She is jeweller / artist / designer and lapsed interior architect, who moonlights as a photographer (and occasionally writes in the 3rd person…)*
All posts are written by Melissa, with quotes as noted. The texts presented in the Conference Papers and Symposia sections were written for delivery by Melissa at the events as indicated in each introduction, and are collected here for reference.
The 1.1.2017 page catalogues a research project and resultant work, completed in 2018.
The MDC posts (included here as an archive) were written from content collected from a variety of sources, usually taken straight from the linked page(s).
Most photography is by Melissa. Some images, including those featured on invitation cards (reprinted with permission), are by others, who retain copyright, as do the other artists whose works feature in posted photos. If your work is featured in an image that you don’t want to see here, please get in touch and it will be removed ASAP.
Melissa’s website hosts many, many more images but is currently an archive of older works – pre 2013. Until it is rebuilt in the second half of 2021 we advocate checking the Works/CV page of this site for a sample of recently completed projects.
In website endeavours Melissa is assisted by the wonderful TurboNerd, who codes with unparalleled verve and speed, and who kindly makes the architecture more or less operable by Melissa.
Favorite tool: a tie between AutoCad LT 2013 and the 100mm Vallorbe saw frame combined with 6/0 Glardon Vallorbe blades. Or camera, or PUK welder, or Optimum drill press…
